One Person Arrested After Eluding Officers

One person was arrested after fleeing from police late last week near Hull. The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested 19-year-old Camdyn Wilson of Orange City Thursday afternoon after a deputy met a pickup that was losing its cargo on Highway 75 three miles southwest of Hull. The driver, later identified as Wilson, began driving on the wrong side of the road, traveled into Hull, turned off the vehicle’s headlights and refused to stop. Wilson jumped out of the moving vehicle and fled on foot; the Ford came to a stop after it struck a residence, causing minor damage.

Wilson was not immediately located after fleeing on foot and deputies determined that the Ford had been stolen from Sioux Center.

While investigating, the sheriff’s office received a tip of a lost cellphone that was involved in the crime; deputies were able to recover the cellphone in a back yard near the location that Wilson had fled on foot. Officers determined that Wilson had the cellphone at the time of the incident and was later identified by the tipster by viewing video from the patrol vehicle the night Wilson fled.

Wilson was transported to the Sioux County Jail where he was charged with eluding law enforcement, first degree theft, interference with official acts and other traffic violations.
